If you follow this blog, then you know many young, gay skateboarders visit here daily, to read comments from skaters, to see photos of skaters, and to send in their own comments about trying to mix skateboarding and their sexual oritentation. Someone sent me the photo I’ve posted here today, and I knew I had to put it up. The kid’s cute and I like the positioning of his limbs, the expression on his face, too. Thanks, Kyle!
I think I must’ve walked five miles here in Berlin today. This morning, we rose pretty early and hit the streets. We roade the U-Bahn and S-Bahn out to the Olympic Stadium, where the 1936 Summer Olympics were held. The whole event, in 1936 Nazi Germany, was a huge P. R. event, and fairly successful. The buildings in the complex are spectacular, especially when you realize it was built so long ago.
Sadly, we had to view the complex from outside the gates, as the Women’s World Cup finals are being held here and the complex is closed to visitors, but we still saw the main stadium and a few surrounding buildings and statuary.
After lunch, we hit the U-Bahn and S-Bahn again. We traveled to the Greunewald and hiked through the park and a nearby neighborhood of beautiful villas, most built in the early 1900s. The area was full of shade trees, which was nice because today the high temperature reached about 90 degrees F. That’s very hot for Berlin. My boyfriend and I even took a dip in the park’s largest lake. The water was pretty cold, but refreshing. Then we rode a bus back to the Zoo train station and took the U-Bahn home.
We had to return all our empty beer bottles to the beer/wine market early this evening. Now the fridge is stocked and I have a fresh bottle open beside me. I’m not sure what we’ll do tonight, but I’m sure we’ll have fun.
Wherever you are, I hope you enjoy your Monday evening.
